Craving Coral and Celebrating Spring with Duane Reade

Spring time means pamper time. With spring slowly arriving to New York City (slowly, but surely), I'm ready to shed the cozy winter weather and dark nail polish colors and undergo a spring revival.  And what better way to take advantage of the warm weather than with a bit of shopping, coral manicures, and Marie Claire fashion inspiration?

For most of my drugstore beauty needs and newest collection releases, I always head to Duane Read. Duane Reade carries known makeup brands as well as Duane Reade products - when I'm looking to save (which is every time, every day), I purchase the Duane Reade private label products that are just as effective and more affordable.  For this simple and bright coral manicure, I used OPI Hot and Spicy and Duane Reade nail prep products.  The Duane Reade pure acetone is perfect for removing stubborn glitter and cleaning off my nail art brushes.  Similarly, the Studio 35 Beauty Premium Cotton Rounds are my go to for removing my polish - these rounds are double sided and include a smooth side that won't leave any fuzzy residue on my nails (any girl that does her nails knows what I'm talking about).  I have an Easter manicure inspired by the Whopper Speckled Robin Egg candy coming up, so stay tuned (and yes, bunnies will be included).

Candy, beauty reads, and pretty nails are just a few ways to start celebrating spring! Be sure to follow Duane Reade for makeup deals, coupons, and beauty inspiration - Duane Reade Twitter, Duane Reade Facebook, and Duane Reade Instagram#DRSpring Time #CollectiveBias

Stay Pretty, Mackenzie M.
